Sandra, that's exactly what I had in mind, except your 'grubby piles' are much larger than the ones from my childhood memories! Your Postman is made of tough stuff...shorts?!

Gnu, I think you & my Grandmother would have really hit it off, particularly on the 'be prepared/self sufficiency' stakes. Come to think of it, I think you would've enjoyed her company anyway. She used to annoy the hell out of my Mother by disclosing 'family secrets' which my Mother had gone to considerable lengths to conceal...I loved it!
      Clearly, your definition of 'dusting' & mine diverge somewhat...our front doorway was never THAT buried!
      From an overcast, damp, but snowless London,
                                  Much Love to You All,
                                                                   Nigel

Snowin a banshee here for the last eight hours. Must be 2" on the roof. The wind is whipping it at just over straight down. But, I have enough in stock for just such a megastorm : two years of provisions for two people, gas to run the 6500w generator feeding Mum's emergency panel for a week, firewood for my house for a month, water for a month (not including snow), and, well, let's just say that I am a Boy Sprout... always prepared. And, if anarchy reigns during the ensuing chaos, I have the necessary quip to save harmless those that I love and hold dear.

Sandra, your title: "Life Song" is the one I will use. Thank you very much. The more I see it within the context of the poem, the more I realise how appropriate it is. I'm still pondering whether to compose a SATB setting, along the lines Maeve suggested. Then again, the poem & a vocal setting could happily coexist...why not?

       Please forgive my 'snow joke', gnu. I was born several miles east of where I now live & by now, in the 40s/50s, there would have been a first covering of snow. A 'White Christmas' was practically guaranteed. We lived at the top of a hill, surrounded by gently sloping fields which were perfect for sledging. It was not uncommon for us to be snowed in...shovels & the resulting aching muscles were the order of the day. My Grandmother planned ahead, so the larder was well-stocked...she'd had plenty of practise in self-sufficiency throughout WW2. The snow often stayed until well into February, leaving those strange, rather grubby piles that simply refused to melt. All of which makes my: "What's Snow?" comment, unfunny & clumsy.
                         With Love,

I saw snow once! it was very pretty & fun!

a friend moved to a town in the Snowy Mountains & the weekend I visited was the week before the start of the skiing season. I hada great time sliding on the snow on my leather-soled shoes & also made a snowball & threw it. Inner-city birds do not have proper snow clothes & I was glad to wear my friend's spare jacket. Kids had made a snow man, too.

As the weather was not obeying the holiday season schedule the snow blowers were out & that added to the fun.

It left me one of my perfect moon memories - full moon seen thru a leafless tree with a mountain peak behind.

Few snowblowers, if any (?), have the option of setting the angle of the blower. That's why Honda blowers cost so much.

"what's 'snow'?" Pop over tomorrow and you can see for yourself.

Agreed, gnu, I think Sandra has nailed it, but I'll wait another day before I decide.

Is it just the Honda snowblower that needs to be in the raised position for an oil check? (-; or is this a characteristic of all snowblowers? My thirst for knowledge has got the better of me (-;....oh yeah...what's 'snow'?

I thought of a couple of titles but... Sandra nailed it.

BTW... a Honda snowblower should be in the raised position when you check the oil as doing so negates having to clean up spilled oil and add more. Jusss sayin eh?

Sandra, I like "Life Song" very much. I'll wait a day or two more to allow for any more suggestions & then make a decision.

Maeve...that could be one of the best ideas I've been presented with in a long, long time. The piece on which I'm currently working is nearly finished, so an SATB quartet, perhaps accompanied by an instrumental quartet is a very tempting proposition. Much food for thought here.
                   Thank you all, so much,

After Jane died, her eldest son became a man in every sense of the word. The burden of responsibility he bore, so stoically, became, after months had passed, almost unbearable. There was nothing I could do that would change things in any meaningful way, so I wrote him these lines:

"And should a salt-tinged tear wash o'er thy cheek,

Think not it doth belie that thou art weak.

Rather, 'tis a sign of love & losing

one who was so close, their loss, confusing.

For We, bereft, our lives persist,

Enshrouded by a frightful mist

of anger, pain & masked emotion,

Forestalled love, defiled devotion.

Stumbling blind, we clutch the air,

With nought to do but Death forswear.

We search for answers, there are none

that comfort bring to anyone;

'tis time that will a healing bring,

'tis time dictates:" Life's Song to sing".

Gnu, really enjoying your local weather reports. They tweak my imagination & bring me closer to you.

Maeve, consider The Rainbow arisen! I trust that your 'surviving' is as broad-based as possible & if we're in "Light at the end of the Tunnel " mode, may the light be copious & ever brighter.

Sincere thanks to those Catters who have participated in my "In Flanders' Fields" project, raising funds for The Royal British Legion. (PM me for details).

Beautiful, apposite lyrics, Janie. It doesn't matter...your words, someone else's. You took the time & trouble to search out that lovely song & let someone else speak for you. I say: "Why not?"
         I wrote earlier about "Thread Fatigue". When a thread has been running for as long as 'Jane's Rainbow', I think there is also the possibility of "Comment Fatigue" too. There have been many times I've struggled to find something 'from the heart' that was both fresh & comforting. Unlike Janie, I often simply didn't post. Janie, the words may be someone else's, but the feelings & emotions they express are yours.

Still not able to find my own voice.

ON A DAY LIKE TODAY
(Bob Dyer)

On a day like today, in the heat of this late summer weather,
There's a haze in the trees and the sound of the bees in the clover;
There's a hawk in the sky, there's a shine on the wide river's water,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.

CHORUS: But the seasons keep changing,
And the days just keep running away,
And forever's a gift you're forever giving away.

On a day like today, in the last golden days of October,
There's a chill in the air and a light haze of frost on the clover;
There's a fire in the trees, there's a sound in the breeze like a whisper,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.

On a day like today, in the heart of a long, bitter winter,
With the light from the moon making stars on the snow in the clover,
I sit down by the fire in the heat of its slow, dying embers,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.

It's a morning in spring, and the dew on the jewel weed still glistens,
And I almost can hear new life being born as I listen;
I walk down by the spring and I drink from its clear flowing water,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.


On A Day Like Today

Keeping you all in heart and mind each day. Days waiting for test results have to be some long old days. Prescription med damage...long term use of Arthrotec does bad things to kidneys; fortunately we had one doc retired and replaced with one who was aware, and I probably haven't lost enough to be in trouble.
We're both cruising along fine physically, and Judy continues to do remarkably well considering surviving a remarkably long time "flat-lined". We're nowhere near at the level of invalid care, but numerous little mental disconnects, and frequent difficulty in communicating, can be taxing, especially for the lady herself. Thanks be that she can still enjoy singing in the choir (so long as her friends help see that the stole goes over the robe, there is something about changes in clothing outside our own home...) and that we both can still enjoy morning exercise-followed-by-coffee-with- friends routines, travel, etc.    Keeping you all in heart and mind each day.

I derive an enormous sense of peace & protection, simply reading your posts. It's like walking into a warm, cosy room, full of my closest, most loved, most trusted friends. There would have to be a log fire of course (-: I'm in that room right now.
          There is some news regarding Aunt Chris. She is due a further biopsy tomorrow & was told by her Oncologist that despite the difficulty of treating the form of cancer she has, once treated, the success rate is better than 95%. Ann & I are hoping for good outcomes, all-round. Ann continues to play the waiting game...test results & a referral to the surgeon who saved her life seven years ago when she was diagnosed with a metastatic malignant melanoma.
         Which brings me to me! I was told yesterday that some of the meds. I've been taking for over three years have been miss-prescribed. The side effects I've endured, coupled with the fact that they have caused life-long complications (which require additional treatment) renders me incandescent with anger & confusion. Someone once said: "If you're angry, take action. Don't become paralysed by the anger". I'm going to speak to my solicitor today with a view to sending a strongly worded letter to the CEO of the relevant health authority...a 'shot across the bow', not the first step towards litigation. Proving negligence is a notoriously difficult, expensive, long drawn-out process, which I can neither afford nor sustain constitutionally.
         Sending love & Life's rich blessings to you all. Could someone put another log on the fire, please?

300 year old glass!

Each October I attend a small festival/gathering at Australia's oldest industrial complex taht is still in use, the Old Goulburn Brewery built 1832-36 & each year I check out the glass in the Mill windows. One pane has a pontil mark the size of my thumbprint, another one has a tiny pontil mark & I make sure they are still there as some panes are broken. Fortunately the owners love the history of the complex & would never replace the panes with modern glass.

But I still look!

Good morning all,

the sun is out in Frinton this morning, sparkling on the blue sea, in fact it is unseasonable warm for the end of October.

Sending love and healing to " auntie Chris" and Ann, Tommy, Maeve , Gnu and of course our captain Nigel.

Sammy had a difficult weekend, mainly in bed, she will see her GP on Thursday and insist (?) on a hospital emergency appointment but I am phoning the Private Consultant's secretary to day as a back up. We had the little girls over the weekend and took them to see their uncle Christopher and Reuben. We saw the concert with "Sid " from the BBC and they all really enjoyed themselves, although swatting a fly and breaking a three hundred year old window wasn't in the plan!! Good job Christopher is the theatre manager!!

sailing on

Wendy xxxxxxxxxxx
